Bowel Cancer Screening Melbourne
Have You Been Screened?
Many illnesses we attend to at Moonee Valley Specialist Centre are serious and debilitating for our patients. However, bowel cancer remains the most significant and life-threatening disease we treat.
Bowel cancer is, in fact, curable in 9 out of 10 people when detected early enough. The American Gastroenterological Association recommends screening every five years for people aged 50 and over (colonoscopy – 2 years for faecal testing only).
Did you know a simple,screening colonoscopy is easy to arrange and only a day procedure for you? Let’s catch bowel cancer before it’s too late. Ask us how.
So, don’t delay. Early detection of bowel cancer could save your life!
Faecal Microbiota Transplant
Would a FMT help you?
Healthy bacteria, or flora, in the human gut plays a critical role in our health. It helps us to absorb the nutrients our bodies need, prevent the growth of harmful bacteria and helps fight virus and other microorganisms that can cause disease.
If our gut flora is missing or unhealthy, our bodies cannot effectively fight disease.
The good news is that gut flora can be re-established to its natural healthy composition to improve your gut and overall health, through the process of a Faecal Microbiota Transplant (FMT).
A Faecal Microbiota Transplant involves the controlled transfer of donor flora from the faeces of a healthy human donor into the bowel of a person whose flora is missing or unhealthy.
